Wonderful Dinner Close To Our HomeWe had a special dinner early on a Friday night, May 17th, 2013. I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The warm lobster salad was very delicious. My husband really enjoyed the salmon. Service was well-timed and friendly. This restaurant is close to our home. So, it is easy access and easy parking. We consider it for a unique eating experience.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Mother's Day DinnerThis is mom's favorite restaurant, so we took her here for an early Mother's Day dinner. Some things came up and we ended up running a bit behind, but they adjusted our reservation last minute with no issues. As always, the experience at Restaurant Christine was wonderful. The restaurant itself is tucked away in an unassuming location, and is such a charming place. It's definitely one of those local gems that you half want to keep a secret just for yourself but half want to tell all your friends about, despite worry that it will get too popular and become a hassle for you to get a seat in the future.
In short: Great food. Charming place. Friendly service. Tasty specials that keep the menu fresh and new.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to celebrate a birthdayI treated my friend to lunch at Christine's for her birthday and not only had they decorated the table, but also gave her a lovely dessert. The food was delicious (as always). It is my favorite restaurant.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHad lunch on a Friday. TheHad lunch on a Friday. The food and service was above average and prices reasonable for white tablecloth dinning. I had the Asian sampler platter which contains a nice selection of food, plenty to eat. My friend got the lobster salad which was also very good but not as filling. They provided a nice selection of breads with lunch.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNot Your Ordinary LunchWhile seemingly simply prepared, the menu was creative and inspired with outstanding dressings and sauces. Our experience was lunch and while not "quiet" it was easy to carry on a conversation. Hearts of romaine salad with creamy taragon was great. The South Western chicken pasta was excellent - no where near a 'typical' dish. Restaurant Christine manages to prepare and serve food that is not too exotic for anyone's taste. We're looking forward to our next trip to the area!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!This is just one of those restaurants that delivers on all levels, food, service & ambiance. It has a bistro-quality to it. While the menu may not change that much they do offer a variety of interesting specials.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the food is uniqueAs always, the food is unique and excellent. The Szechuan seared ahi was one of the best meals I've ever had! And the service was very personable as always. Christine's is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in the LA area, while having none of the pretentiousness of most fine dining establishments.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of this WorldI had the lamb chops-they were cooked perfectly. It came with an excellent sauce, an "out of this world" eggplant moussaka that complimented the lamb chops perfectly and sauted fresh spinach. They have excellent wines by the glass...Far Niente chardonnay, my favorite and I had an excellent meritage to go with the lamb. A truly, stellar dinner.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery impressed by the attentiveVery impressed by the attentive service and quality of each dish.

The service is impeccable.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA new dish was the seafoodA new dish was the seafood pasta. Not regularly on the menu. Excellent assortment of seafood, tasty sauce, perfectly seasoned, and served "hot." Typically excellent service - serve was friendly, attentive, but intrusive. Suggested the dish become a regular menu item. Cost was reasonable for the delicious dish and a generous portion as well. Server's name: Lisa. The greeter/hostess: Barbara.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only downside of the eveningThe only downside of the evening was the hostess who was somewhat overbearing and spoke to us as if we were children.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food.
